The reader is taken through the Bhagavid Gita, step by step, with each verse interpreted with Brahama Yoga style transcription. The author explains in detail the meaning of Brahma yoga and how it relates to energy of the psyche.
What I like most about this book is the way the author translates the passages. Each and every passage of the Gita has the original Sanskrit writing followed by the pronunciation and the literal tanslation, word-for-word. This is an amazing feat in itself but the author goes on to add the English interpretation to that literal translation. Not only that but he also includes a commentary guided through him by his guru Siddha Swami Nityananda. Although Nityananda died in 1961 Yogi Madhvacarya (Michael Beloved) received the psychic direction to write the commentary.
As far as I'm concerned, this is a very powerful book lending itself as a masterpiece in the world of yoga. As I read the verses I compared them to the The Bhagavad-Gita as translated by Barbara Stoler Miller. Michael Beloved's and Miller's translation of the Gita, although somewhat different in composition, are refreshingly similar in intrpretation. I also compared this book, Brahma Yoga Bhagavad Gita to Michael Beloved's other book, Kriya Yoga Bhagavad Gita, and found that although the interpretations are the same the commentaries are quite different. This might seem contradictory on the surface but the differences compound the understanding of the conflict that was going on inside the warrior Arjuna.
